Lots of places nearby Segerstrom Center to eat, from pricey to moderate. We ate at Thasos, a moderately priced Greek restaurant, in the Bed, Bath and Beyond shopping center diagonal to Segerstrom Center. Pretty good food, and can leave your car there to save $10 parking fee. Also Japanese, Indian, Cuban or specialty Hamburger restaurants in the same center.

The cast was great (especially Gomez), but the musical itself was not one of my favorites. There was humor, but it wasn't dark enough. Also, the story just seemed to drag along, as the first act was much better than the second.

Hated it. True Addams family fans will be annoyed.

Kennedy as Pugsley, Curtis Holbrook as Lucas Beineke, and Cortney Wolfson as Wednesday.

The Addams Family features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
